a background check and pay a fine and back taxes before gaining legal status in the united states. all that is contingent on securing borders. the proposal provides for increased use of drones, more personnel and improved infrastructure and it would create an employment verification system and improve the process for admitting needed workers. cnn chief congressional correspondent dana bash and cnn chief white house correspondent jessica yellin are working the story. dana, the tone was pretty optimistic up on capitol hill today. >> it sure was but, you know, we have seen this movie before, you and i, wolf, and a lot of other people watching this issue go kind of up and down with the partisan wins. but this is something that is different this time. because of something very simple. and that is what happened in the last election to republicans. particularly mitt romney with the latino voters. he lost big time. and that's why when i asked senator mccain and others who were standing right here where i'm standing, half a dozen years ago, why this is different, that's why they answered that w
line is historic tax rates, how much we raise in taxes and the blue is how many increases president obama is calling for. the red is where spending is going. spending is the problem, revenues are not the problem. if you keep chasing them they will hurt economic growth, shut down the economy and won't get the budget balanced. >> what i heard the president say was programs like social security and medicare and med aid critically important for our future and we need to have a bipartisan commitment to make them work. bob and i have been in a lot of meetings talking about deficit reduction. we need reform in the programs that mean they will live on to serve future generations. that's the message i took from the president. >> referring to bob corker to the left of the screen. the president has a full plate. not just the budget but the issue of guns, and this week he heads to las vegas for a speech about overhauling immigration. so the second term is already kicking off with plenty on his plate. >> all right. peter alexander, white house correspondent, thank you so much. >>> we want to tur
to stand out in a crowd, whether it's on taxes or regulations or in the past on immigration, you were completely shunned from the party. finally there's an understanding we've got to grow the party. what we've been saying for quite frankly for years and getting attacked, we want colin powell on our side. we want moderate republicans on our side. if we're going to be the majority party again, we've got to spend the party. >> are you saying they're pushing her out of the spotlight as part of making the stupid party less stupid? >> what i'm saying is that sarah palin represented a time and place in american politics. and not 2008 so much as 2010. and that time is passing us very quickly. and party leaders are finally understanding that. you know, roger els, i brought up richard haass, roger els before. roger els saw this coming well before the 2012 election. he had realized what had gone wrong. not only at his network but also in the conservative movement of the republican party. that's why he was running out and talking to chris christie saying, get in this race. you can save this party
, and this is net, after tax revenue is realized, $2.6 trillion. and that's in costs in medicare, social security, unemployment compensation, food stamps and other welfare programs. that's a foundation study. so the bottom line is, we're trying to balance the budget in washington that we'll balance in ten years but not taking into account the 2.6 trillion that it will cost by creating a pathway to citizenship and that number may increase, wolf, if we don't have our borders secured. >> one final question, because a lot of republicans are looking at the fastest growing vote, the hispanic vote across the country and republicans, at least in the last presidential election, the one before 2008, didn't do very well. they are obviously anxious to reach out to latino voters. are you saying you want to just forget about that vote? >> no. what i'm saying, wolf, is that anyone that believes that immigration or illegal immigration is the most important issue to the latino population in america is grossly mistaken. it is an issue but it's not the most important issue to latinos. listen, the people that are hu
reform, tax reform, it happened at the state level and local level. while we need to change the climate here in washington. at the same time, i can look around this table and say you won, first governor ever to win a recalled bid, a recalled call. and you are in a very conservative state, in a conservative spot. you are in a conservative state, so you all were kind of fine, and you still lost, republicans lost wisconsin, republicans lost virginia and republicans lost the latino vote. so there is a huge disconnect here, not just for you, but for voters. >> i would like the rest of the panel to say this as well. even in wisconsin, just like every democrat has since 1984, the same year i not only won a recall election by a higher percentage two years ago, we took the state senate back, you see that now about half the states in america have republican majorities, more than half have republican government no, sir. local leaders in our states and local governments, they're being relevant, they're being hospital mystic, they're being a courageous. >> why were you popular in virginia and you co
hotels operating nearby. >> they get to citizenship. they back to their country. they don't pay any taxes and they can come back later and attend colleges here. get loans based on the benefits you get as a u.s. citizen and get all of these benefits and essentially not be american. you are not american on paper but you are really not american. you don't even live here. >> it has cause an awful lot of upset in the neighborhood. this is what happened when we dispatched our crew. they clearly didn't want to talk to us. there has been no sign of them since either. >> the only thing illegal what these birthing centers are doing is having lodging in residential zoning. it's a code violation or business violation of the code. i have introduced a bill in the legislature that will increase the fines dramatically. >> well, many different kinds of violations potentially concerned specifically about the conditions of some of these illegal operations last year. one place a young baby was dropped and that child died problems widespread because of the demographic. mothers of other nationalities are comin
's fiscal crisis saying only significant spending cuts, not tax reform, will solve the deficit problem. that is something is he thinks the president is missing. >> i don't think that the president thinks we actually have a fiscal crisis. he has been reportedly saying to our leaders we don't have a spending problem, we have a health care problem. that leads me to conclude he thinks we ought to have more government-run health care and rationing. i don't think that is going to work. jon: let's get back to karl rove. karl, what about his thoughts on a president bent on conquest? >> i think it is accurate. i wrote about this in my "wall street journal" column last week. i thought it was interesting in the president's inaugural address he went out of his way to take a political slap at his defeated opponent in the election, mitt romney and then he went on to basically call republicans name-calling absolutist who are clowns. in order to make certain we got the point, his communication director had gone on television the day before we have neither a political system or a political opposition w
